aden+anais classic swaddle blanket Review

With my last babies swaddling was a must, if their arms were out they wouldn’t sleep.  The problem is all I had was tiny blankets that made swaddling impossible because they would bust out of them seconds after they were put in so I would spend hours trying to get them swaddled.  On top of that having to lug around receiving blankets, nursing covers, car seat covers and more I was going insane with all the blankets I would not only need to use but have to wash.  Then I discovered aden+anais muslin swaddle blankets and it was like the heavens smiled down on me and angels starting singing, a blanket that could be used for all of the above and so much more.  I received a four pack of the blankets for review and loved them so much I bought a second set so you will see both sets throughout this review in the pictures.  I received the baby cakes swaddle collection for review and I bought the princess posie swaddle collection.

The generous sizing on these aden+anais swaddle blankets, 47 x 47, is crazy compared to the tiny receiving blankets, 30 x 30, that I bought before Kinley was born and I knew about the aden+anais swaddles.  In the picture below you can see my friend Erin’s baby Molly laying next to Kinley on one of my aden+anais swaddle blankets and you can see that there is plenty of room on either side of the girl, as a matter of fact in this picture on Kinleys side you cannot even see the end of the blanket because there was that much extra and you can see it starting to double back on Molly’s side.  I know that you can see the rug at the girls butts this is only because I had the blanket folded in half for them to lay on because I didn’t want the other kids running over it while the girls were laying on it.

One of the things that I absolutely love about the aden+anais swaddle blankets is that they are made of a 100% cotton muslin so when you first get them they seem a little rougher but with each wash you can feel them softening right up.  When I got ours I washed them three times right away just because I love how soft they get.  The muslin is a very breathable material so I find that even swaddled up on our hottest summer nights Kinley did not get warm in it.

The fabric’s light, open weave allows a baby’s body temperature to regulate itself naturally, helping to reduce the risk of overheating. It is gentle on baby’s skin and durable for everyday use.  Traditionally used for swaddling, our wraps can also be used as burp cloths, nursing and stroller covers, portable crib sheets, stroller and car seat liners, tummy time blankets, change table covers, and more.

I have used mine for almost all the uses mentioned above and it stands up and does exactly what I need it to each time.  I love using them as a nursing cover because it is big enough to give us lots of cover but breathable enough that I know she is not going to be a sweaty mess when I am done nursing her.  Here is a quick collage of just a few pics I have snapped with my cell phone over the last few weeks of Kinley with her aden+anais blankets.

 The swaddle blankets retail at $49.99 for a 4 pack and can be purchased on the aden+anais website.  They have colors for girls, colors for boys and even some gender neutral colors/patterns.  I also when writing this review discovered the b jeweled collection and I think I know what my next purchase is going to be the colors are absolutely gorgeous and if these would have been out when I was choosing my collection for review this would have been my choice.

If you don’t want to buy a four pack or just want to try them out before you purchase you can also buy a 2 pack for $32.00 although the selection is more limited but they do have an adorable camo one in the 2 pack.  You can also buy singles for $22.00 so they do carry something for every budget.

Although I know my review did focus on the classic swaddle because this is what they have you can also get the swaddle blankets in organic, cozy and bamboo fashions all of which you can find on their website.  aden+anais also carries much more then just the swaddle blankets on their website you will find sleeping bags, bibs and burp clothes, washcloths and towels, security blankets and even their mum+bub skin care line.

For updates to all their products and more be sure to follow aden+anais on twitter and like them on Facebook.

I received the four pack of baby cakes swaddle collection to facilitate this review, no other compensation was received and all opinions stated in this review are my own.

    I love Aden and Anais blankets! They are so soft and are very durable after multiple washing! These are awesome swaddle blankets to get.

  5. Jeannie says:

    the aden and anais swaddling blankets were definitely my fav. when my little ones first arrived. Perfect for swaddling during the hotter months when they still needed to be swaddled before they would fall asleep.

  7. In thhe food industry, HCl is used foor processing starch, glucose
    and protein. This smoke is generally a mijxture of
    a number of gases like carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, carbon hydroxide, methane, propane, butane, isobutene,
    etc. Aside from those, there are also lead and tar from cigarette smoking.

  8. Free markets ‘ not government ‘ will ultimately help separate the best of the
    industry from the worst. Each cartomizer usually lasts
    as long as a full pack of cigarettes, and many come 5 to a
    pack for less than $13. A few online shops
    offer top of the line, premium e-juice that produces massive amounts of vapor that you can see and taste, but you will have to keep your eye out for the right ones and don’t be fooled by
    the shops that have flashy designs with hardly any flavor.

    I’m not sure exactly why but this web site is loading incredibly slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on mmy end?
    I’ll cneck back later and seee iff the problem still exists.

  13. During the ten-year follow-up, researchers documented new cases of chrpnic lung disease in the two control
    groups. The both ingredients are effective, safe and easily absorbed
    because both are naturally occurring non-toxic
    biochemical constituents found inn connecting tissues. However there iss something that
    you should remember.

  14. I am on Facebook at A Harmony of Flavors and share a recipe or tip each day
    to the fas that have liked my site. Community developers, like Leon Churchill, understand that,
    though the physical attributes of a community are important, these
    do nott make an ideal community. this is by far the most common benefit people
    know bout green coffee bean extracts.

  15. Drip tips are less wasteful since you do not have to throw away
    your previous cartridge. This should not be a problem since
    as long as they have a portable charger and access to a regular house outlet they can easily plug it anywhere.
    After advertising on Craigslist, he soon had a huge customer
    base in Cerritos and the surrounding areas.

    various dietary supplements and diets which were supposedly useful, in lots of circumstances these truly made
    his situation worse relatively than higher.

    Quality content is thhe mai to infite thhe visitors too
    go to see the web site, that’s what this wweb page is providing.

  19. The newest fad of the day is all about going green and being environmentally aware.

    The natural compound found in these beans that make this extract so powerful in the weight loss industry.
    The Sumatran coffee is so unique owing to the vast amount
    of flavors which are already in the green beans themselves and not because of any contamination as
    wrongly speculated.

  20. Drip tips are less wasteful since you do not have to throw away
    your previous cartridge. Technological advancements today have led to the creation of the new electronic cigarette, a
    device that aims to help even the most seemingly hopeless smoker to quit.
    Aside from those, there are also lead and tar from cigarette smoking.

  21. Very energetic article, I loved that bit. Will there be a part 2?

  22. When I look for what supplements to take I have a few points that
    I like to keep in mind. If the hild has a good appeetite and has a complete daily menu certainly does not need food supplement.

    Thhe best vegetable sources of vitamin k2 are the leafy greens such as spinach, broccoli, cabbage and lettuce.

  23. Can I just say what a relief to uncover an individual who genuinely knows what they’re discussing on the net. You actually know how to bring a problem to light and make it important. More and more people must read this and understand this side of the story. I was surprised you’re not more popular given that you definitely possess the gift. you could look here: http://tinyurl.com/jjq2yw8
